A former I'm A Celebrity contestant will make his first appearance in court today charged with raping two women.

Brazilian-born rapper Aggro Santos, 22, is accused of raping one woman in Chichester, West Sussex, on May 7 and another in Yeovil, Somerset, between September 25 and 26 last year.



Another man, 21-year-old Tyrelle Ritchie, has been charged with one count of rape in Chichester on the same date.



Santos's debut single, Candy, featuring former Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberly Wyatt, shot to number five in the UK charts last year.



But he became more popularly known by his appearance in last year's series of ITV's reality game show I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! in which he reached the final six.



Santos, real name Yuri Santos, and Ritchie are both on bail and are due to appear at Chichester Magistrates' Court from 10am.
